Cinemart: 26 new projects in store
Director Eva Husson, whose new project Les Filles du Soleil is selected

Marking, as always, the beginning of the film industry calendar as the first big professional gathering of the year in Europe, the co-production market of the International Film Festival Rotterdam (IFFR), CineMart, will be back between 29 January 29 and 1 February 2017 as part of the IFFR PRO Days (28 January – 3 February). The upcoming edition of CineMart will present a total of 26 new projects – selected from  over 450 submissions plus the BoostNL projects presented at the last Holland Film Meeting during the Netherlands Film Festival (read the report).

(a Dutch co-production previously developed in Cinemart), France’s Eva Husson, who is currently working on the production of Les Filles du Soleil with production outfit Maneki Films, Spain’s Oliver Laxe with Aquilo que arde, Italy’s Pietro Marcello with Martin Eden, Denmark’s Martin Skovbjerg with Sticks and Stones, and many other international names.

Dutch talent could not miss out on the Netherlands’ biggest film event either. Klaartje Quirijns is putting together De Omweg with Submarine Film, whilst Peter Hoogendoorn hasteamed up with Circe Film and Belgium’s Czar to direct Goeree. Moreover, September Film will co-produce German director Anne Zohra Berrached’s new project Die Frau des Piloten.

Two experimental films have also made it to the final Art:Film selection: After London by British director Ben Rivers and Kindness by Greece’s Stefan Tsivopoulos.

All the selected titles are competing for three awards: the coveted Eurimages Co-Production Development Award (€20,000), the ARTE International Prize (€6,000), and the Wouter Barendrecht Award (€5,000).

For Marit van den Elshout, Head of IFFR PRO and CineMart, the main priority is to come up with an interesting line-up which also meets the realistic expectations of the film market: “We have to look carefully at the projects we present, at what kind of life these projects will have once they have been made into films, rather than just choosing them because they’re 'nice festival films'. With this selection I feel we’ve managed to present a very diverse line up of storytellers and projects, with solid structures and teams presenting them."
